I am here again and this is my first post for this year. Guilty for not updating but I do log in everyday as a passive reader..just to click ‘like’ and ‘comment’ on a few posts. My baking journey continues too where actually I did a few baking but don’t turn out very well. My first baking for 2013 was pavlova and I am not proud of it… (Gonna make again soon, but need to find the trick and tips to bake better meringue).
Well for the failure of my Pavlova, I managed to successfully baked this super delicious chocolate chip cookies….my children loved them and my hubby said they are better than store-bought cookies. The kids brought them to school for lunch….(happy !!!) (My children like home cooked meal for their lunch box and I am proud to cook for them everyday).
I use this recipe from http://www.instructables.com/id/Best-Ever-Chocolate-Chip-Cookie-Recipe/ and follow the instructions very closely though I must admit that waiting the dough to be frozen for 36 hours is very difficult. So I do bake some unfrozen dough and it doesn’t taste good….I love this recipe and gonna make this again and again.
Here is the recipe…for instructions please click the link above…..Good Luck
